THERE'S A preacher on a missionary trip to Africa. He's out exploring when he gets lost in the jungle and finds himself being chased by a lion. He runs for miles until he's so exhausted he stops and gives up. As the lion approaches, the preacher falls to his knees and begins to pray. 'Please, Lord, don't let this lion eat me.'
The lion stops in front of the man, stares for awhile, then gets on his knees and begins speaking softly. Excited about his prayer being answered, the preacher turns to the lion and says, 'I didn't know lions prayed.'
The lion says, 'Don't get excited, I'm saying grace.'
